Benefits of Collagen

Happy Tuesday, friends! I hope your weekend (and Monday!) was refreshing and you are energized for the start of a new week!

This evening I am excited to share a little more about one of my beauty supplement must haves! I have shared about collagen quite a few times on my Instagram, and I always receive many questions - so I thought I’d give you all the answers ;)

I started using Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides a little over a year ago (has it been that long?!) It was recommended to me to help with my gut health, but I have found this product has helped me in so many additional ways.

What is Collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It is a building block for healthy bones, hair, skin, nails, joints, ligaments, and tendons.

Adding collagen to our everyday diets can help our bodies regenerate what has been compromised over the years.

It is made up of amino acids, which assist in keeping our connective tissues and gut healthy.

Collagen for our Skin

Because collagen makes up 70% of the protein within our skin, getting a sufficient amount of collagen ensures our skin will stay glowing.

I have struggled with oily skin, acne, and acne scarring for years. Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides have helped my skin regain vibrancy and best of all minimize my breakouts.   

As we age the layers of our skin begin thinning and losing elasticity. In simple terms: wrinkles and cellulite. Collagen provides support to regain elasticity and tone.

I noticed the change in my skin in just 4 short weeks of enjoying my peptides!

Collagen for our Bodies

Our bones, ligaments, and tendons are made of proteins. This protein is collagen. Thanks to collagen we can enjoy dancing, yoga, and sports. As we age, our joints stiffen and our bones become more fragile. Give your body an extra collagen boost to improve your well-being.

In addition to our bones and joints, our hair and nails is largely made up of collagen. Supplementing collagen can give extra shine to our hair, and strengthen brittle nails.

Vital Proteins makes it easy to incorporate collagen into your daily routine. With their large selection of products, there is no excuse to not add collagen to your diet!

My personal favorite is the Collagen Peptides. I use the peptide powder in my morning smoothie and/or coffee. The collagen peptides can be used in hot or cold liquids. They are tasteless and odorless.

I recently started to “treat” myself with Collagen Beauty Water which comes in many flavors including Lavender Lemon, Strawberry Lemon, Melon Mint, and Tropical Hibiscus! I buy them in individual sample packs so I can try all the flavors!

Other products I am excited to try:

Collagen Creamer – Vanilla

Spirulina Capsules

Get your daily dose of collagen and #StayVital!
